The closest I’ve been to experiencing something as majestic as the Great Barrier reef was when I snorkeled near Puerto Rico, but the amount of coral and variety of living organisms just doesn’t compare. This underwater paradise is nothing new when it comes to bucket lists, so it should seem as no surprise that I’ve decided to feature the reef. I love the beach and swimming in the ocean as much as the next guy, but I’m much more of a land-lover. So - I think I would limit my under-worldly explorations simply to two: the Great Barrier Reef and the Lechuguilla Caverns in New Mexico.
